Brian thought it might be a good idea to try and break the news up into more organized groups.  After only one show’s worth of hindsight, I would have to agree that it seems like  a great idea.  It certainly seems to encourage more conversation from the chat room and I already know it made it much easier on the post edit.

We opened with some Sarah Donner. They were live tracks recorded with her permission at this year’s 2014 Gen Con. The tracks were Going Under and Fossil Girl You can find out more about her at:

Tech Net News and Opinion – Smart Cars

While doing our weekly live news broadcast, we noticed we had a good number of stories on newer tech in automobiles.  This topic is something that Lumpy has followed for a few years.  (Maybe it has to do with the fact that he converted a 1971 Impala while in high school.)  Nonetheless, we are convinced that the cars of tomorrow are going to be considerably different from those of today.

Please listen in and if you ever wish to give us your opinion leave a comment, join us in #indienation on Geekshed.net IRC, or, better yet, join us live on the air Mondays 8-10 pm EST where you can voice your opinion live.  (You can get details on how to join us in IRC.)

Zero Power Standby Mode May Be a Reality Soon

In today’s world of increasing energy consumption, it is imperative that we find ways to use less and less power, especially for the things we use most.  I would feel that computers in standby mode fall into that category.  After all isn’t that what standby mode is for?

An article at PhysOrg.com reports that:

NEC Corporation and Tohoku University announced today the development of the world’s first content addressable memory (CAM) that both maintains the same high operation speed and non-volatile operation as existing circuits when processing and storing data on a circuit while power is off.
